Energy production

ENGIE has local, diversified and flexible production facilities in Belgium with one of the lowest CO2-emission levels in Europe. ENGIE is also a major player in the production of green electricity in Belgium, with an installed capacity of 720 MW. The electricity is produced in Belgium, close to the end-user, at around 85 locations and with approximately 200 large and small production units. This diversification enables optimal utilisation of the complementarity between technologies, using them to their best advantage, and inhibiting their disadvantages, with a view to ensuring a constant, uninterrupted electricity supply for our customers, irrespective of the conditions.

The balanced energy mix is a key element in our strategy. It is the obvious answer to the various challenges with respect to the environment, economy and energy: 

  • Supplying and delivering energy at competitive prices 
  • Providing a stable electricity supply, irrespective of weather conditions 
  • Limiting CO2-emissions 
  • Compensating for the fluctuating availability of some green technologies (wind turbines only run when it’s windy; solar panels only provide energy when the sun shines).  

ENGIE aims to consolidate its position as an innovative green energy producer and continues to invest in renewable energies. ENGIE wishes to further expand its wind capacity and realise 1,000 MW by 2030. When it comes to solar power, ENGIE aims to have installed 300 MW by the end of 2030. 

ENGIE has in Belgium a local, diversified and flexible production park with one of the lowest CO2 emission values in Europe. Discover our production units here.

Renewable energy

Renewable energy

Renewable energies are the key to meeting the energy challenges of the future while respecting our planet. This is why ENGIE is developing sustainable and innovative solutions to provide clean and renewable energy.

Flexible generation

Flexible production

Flexible production involves the use of innovative technologies such as gas-fired power plants, battery energy storage systems and hydrogen production technologies. These technologies can be used to meet fluctuations in energy demand, compensate for the intermittency of renewable energies, and ensure the stability of the electricity grid.

Nuclear energy

Nuclear energy

Belgium has 7 nuclear power plants: 4 in Doel and 3 in Tihange. The 5 operational Belgian nuclear power plants together produce about a third of the country's total electricity consumption, without CO₂ emissions. Nuclear energy is important for Belgium, for guaranteeing the electricity supply 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, for achieving the climate objectives, for the competitiveness of electricity prices and for local employment.

First spade in the ground marks start of construction for ENGIE’s new battery park in Vilvoorde

Today, on 5 July 2024, a ground breaking celebration in the presence of mayor Hans Bonte marked the start of the construction of a new 200 MW battery park on the ENGIE site in Vilvoorde. From September 2025, the batteries will be available to store 800 MWh of electricity and inject it into the grid for up to four hours. This type of flexibility, one of ENGIE's strategic priorities, will provide essential support to the power grid.

ENGIE and Solarge install largest circular solar installation at SABIC in Genk

ENGIE, Solarge, and SABIC have joined forces for a groundbreaking solar installation of 2.4 MW at the SABIC site in Genk, Belgium. What makes these solar panels unique is that they are 100% circular, weigh much less than traditional solar panels and are produced by Solarge in the Netherlands using SABIC materials. This project is a true milestone: never before has an installation of this size been built with these panels anywhere in the world.
